Question:

My teacher gave me feedback on my paper and told me that this sentence is incorrect but I can't understand why. Here is the first half of the sentence that he marked as incorrect. In the story Good Country People written by flannery o'Connor

Answer:

For this sentence, since you are stating the name of the book, we need to use quotation marks and follow the "protocol" for them. By protocol, I mean use a comma before the quotation marks. Also, peoples names should be capitalized. The beginning of your sentence would look like this: In the story, "Good Country People" written by Flannery O'Connor.

Basic Math

Question:

I am taking a math class this semester but have forgotten some basic math that is needed in order to complete some of the problems. Here is something I am needing help with: x + 8 = 12 I remember learning this at one point, but I cannot remember how to do it.

Nicole T.
Answer:

For this equation, you are solving for x. That basically means that we want to know what number plus 8 = 12. You may be able to do this in your head, but I want to show you how you would go about solving it in case the numbers were bigger. x + 8 = 12 In order to solve for x, we need to get x "by itself" meaning that we want it secluded to one side - kind of like the 12 is! In order to do that, we would need to get rid of the 8 which would mean that we subtract it, however, what you do to one side you must do to the other. x + 8 = 12 - 8 - 8 x = 4 And that is our answer!

English

Question:

My English teacher gave us an assignment to define what a thesis and conclusion are. I have an idea of what each of them are, but I don't know exactly how to describe them. When I write a paper, I don't think about the thesis or conclusion. I just write until I'm done.

Nicole T.
Answer:

I like to think of the thesis as the beginning of a paper. Not the introduction telling what your paper contains, but the beginning - something to grasp the attention of your readers. The conclusion is basically a sum of your paper. I like to read over my paper before writing it so that I can be sure that it contains a true summery of the content that was in my paper.
